    The only thing I can think of is make sure you have the code for your OEM headunit.

    I've had to disconnect mine a couple of times with no adverse effects. Everything still works as it should afterwards.

    I'm not sure why you have to lower them all the way in the manual? Maybe just to check that they work. Quick way to reset the one touch is, when they are in the closed position, just to pull the window switch upwards to close for a few secs, and they will be fine.

    Also IIRC, when reconnecting the battery and firing the car for the first time, I think the car goes through a throttle adaptation phase, so you should leave it to idle for 5 minutes or so and the revs will go up and down slightly.
